General avoids sex offender list

Raleigh, N.C.— Defense attorneys said Sunday that an Army general has agreed to a plea deal that includes the dropping of sexual assault charges against him.

Lawyers representing Brig. Gen. ____ ____ said he will plead to lesser charges in exchange for having the sexual assault charges dropped, along with two other counts that might have required Sinclair to register as a sex offender. Full Article

    In theory, he faces more than 15 years in prison, though the plea agreement is unlikely to require anything close to the maximum penalties. Sinclair may also be forced to retire at reduced rank, costing him dearly in pension benefits.

    I don’t understand? Everyone knows that registering is just a minor inconvenience?

    Wouldn’t he have been smarter to plea out to register providing he could keep his full pension benefits? That could amount to a lot of money.

    Hey how about that general who was charged of a crime which is a sex offence but in the article it say’s that they dropped certain charges so he didn’t have to register as a sex offender, now you know who the government is protecting and who they are condemning

    What lessons are learned here? That some people are above the law. What a world
    we live in when the powerful and well to do dictate the terms of their own punishment, AND sheepish prosecutors go along with them. What a pity and a disgrace.

    The UCMJ must have been modeled after Swiss cheese with the RHIP clauses abound..

    And then watch the laws change in 5 years causing him to have to register anyway. Wouldn’t that be poetic!!!

    Huh…I was never given that option, but then I just worked for a living and didn’t have much. Of course, I have even less now! If only I was a general, a police officer, a politician or in some form of law enforcement, maybe the son of some child named law author I would be free now.
    The funny thing is, I am free, free from guilt, free from the ultimate curse and penalty of the only law that really matters. I have been blessed and CARSOL is a part of that blessing.

    I was never given that option either, but then I was only 20 and just wanted to crawl into a hole and make it all go away. I hardly understood the ramifications of being an RSO. My lousy lawyer did not seem to understand or care either. He just took my parent’s money to fund a new Benz. Now that douche is an OC judge.

    While RHIP is a given and an enlisted man or civilian would never get off so easily, this government is so corrupt – for all we know the General may have been set up for failure to support a (faulty) weapons system contract. Then again, maybe I watch too much House of Cards.

    If anyone doesn’t believe we have two Americas now, they are clearly blind and ignorant.

    JB I Think You Are correct it has been that way awhile; now there just bein’ blatantly obvious about it Like,,”What Are You Gonna Do About it”! Attitude. ?Welcome to Amedika!

    It’s crazy … the words I read in this article make me scream – DUH!!! I feel bad for the wife but … aarrgghhh … he’s been punished enough, yeah, right!” Welcome to the club, Mr. General. Funny when it happens to ones own family!!!
